If you were counting in twos, can you use your fingers to show double (two lots of) a number?
Double 1, double 2, double 3, double 4 and double 5. Say “double 1 is…., double 2 is…”
Here is an example of using fingers to show double 3. "Double 3 is 6."
We are recapping 2D flat shapes circle, rectangle, square, triangle, pentagon, hexagon.
Take a look at the 2D shape mat attached below. Can you remember the names of the shapes? (You do not need to know the names of all these shapes, but try to learn triangle, square, rectangle and circle. If you can remember pentagon and hexagon too that would be amazing!)
Ask a grown up to describe one of the shapes, can you guess what the shape is? For example:
“I have 4 straight sides that are the same length”
“I have 3 straight sides and 3 corners”
“I have 1 curved side and no corners”
Challenge- Can you describe a shape to a grown up? Remember to use language such as sides, corners, straight, curved, flat 2D.
Super Challenge- Have a go at the activity below. Can you sort the shapes by their sides into the Venn diagram?
